Swiss precision meets athletic brilliance. In a dynamic confluence of spirit, talent, and craftsmanship, TAG Heuer, the Swiss luxury watchmaker, heralds a new era by welcoming American sprinter Fred Kerley, 100 m world champion and Olympic silver medallist, Botswana’s youngest sprinter Letsile Tebogo and up-and-coming swimmer Summer McIntosh to its acclaimed family of ambassadors.
Fred Kerley, the indomitable American sprinter, has etched his name with golden ink in the annals of athletics. With a prowess in the 100, 200, and 400 meters, his accolades are not just laudable but historic. Notably, Kerley’s unique feat of running sub 10.80 seconds in the 100m, sub 19.80 seconds in the 200m, and sub 43.80 seconds in the 400m underlines his dominance. This esteemed athlete holds an Olympic silver medal, a 100m World Championship title, and is hailed as the joint 6th fastest man in the 100m domain. Kerley’s alignment with TAG Heuer mirrors the symbiotic relationship between precision and performance, core values the watch brand has upheld since its inception in 1860. As Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer, articulated, the union between TAG Heuer and such distinguished athletes is not just serendipitous, but “a natural fit.“
But the winds of change bring more than one legend. Letsile Tebogo, the prodigious Botswana sprinter, has swiftly risen to be one of the promising stars of the track. Born in 2003, he has showcased a talent that belies his age. Victories in the 100 and 200 meters at the World Athletics Junior Championships of 2021 and 2022, along with becoming the youngest-ever champion of the 2022 African Championship 200-meter event, manifest his potential. With Tebogo onboard, TAG Heuer reaffirms its vision of nurturing and aligning with audacious and fearless talents.
While the athletic domain gleams with Kerley and Tebogo, the azure waters shimmer with the prowess of Summer McIntosh. The prodigious swimmer, with her World Champion titles and World Records, brings a refreshing energy to the TAG Heuer ambassadorial tableau. Her youthful fervor and determination resonate well with the TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 Titanium, 42MM collection. Boasting hues of green, yellow, and red, this collection mirrors the vivacity and passion that these athletes exude.
TAG Heuer’s journey has been emblematic of pioneering innovations, marrying technology with athletic brilliance. As they have stood shoulder to shoulder with champions globally, they capture the essence of determination, resilience, and grit, values that athletes like Kerley, Tebogo, and McIntosh showcase in abundance.
The words of Fred Kerley resonate this shared vision, “Joining TAG Heuer fills me with boundless enthusiasm. I believe in the brand’s values of exceptional performance, precision, and passion.” Letsile Tebogo, echoing similar sentiments, expressed his elation, “Joining forces with TAG Heuer is a dream come true. Being with their esteemed ambassadors is truly an honor I cherish.” Summer McIntosh, with her youthful zest, encapsulates her association, “Being part of the TAG Heuer family is an honor. The TAG Heuer Connected is my everyday companion, a perfect fit.”
